The Latest Installment of Quotes from Corrupt Illinois Politicians

Toothbrushes, cheddar cheese, hogs? You'd be crazy to pass up reading these corruption quotes!

Did you know that if you type "why is [state] so..." into Google's search bar, it will display a drop down list of autocomplete results? If the above title wasn't a big enough clue, could you guess one of the adjectives that appears?

Sadly, aside from cold, broke and expensive, Google figures you'll be searching for, "why is Illinois so corrupt," though the other descriptors aren't exactly flattering.

Equally as sad, the state's epidemic of political corruption is almost like white noise to Illinoisans. With so much of it over the years, when new allegations arise, it's hard to be truly shocked -- save the latest accusations against former state Rep. Keith Farnham.

We've put together yet another edition of top 10 quotes from corrupt Illinois politicians, which will either make your eyes roll, shake your head, snicker or actually shock you. Since former Gov. Rod Blagojevich thought it was appropriate to compare the date of his arrest to a tragic WWII event, as you'll see, these quotes certainly will live in infamy.

Also, don't forget to read up on Illinois' latest political corruption trial that involves a FBI sting and bribery charges, or as the accused (current) state rep. would call it, accepting "cheddar."
